It's only been a week, so I don't wanna jinx myself by saying anything quite yet

I'll post more info as the results come in.

Safari tanks aren't sealed on the inside like the stock tanks are which is why they can't be painted. They can be wrapped, but not painted.

The picture is of vinyl wrap, not paint. A few small stickers I used are doing the same thing.
I dont believe it has to do with sealing, its the material used.
Its the only material that lends itself to Safari's roto molding process.
